Sky breaking news while it breaks the news

There is an amusing video on YouTube of a couple of people giving a running commentary over BBC News wondering why they haven’t mentioned the earthquake (via Media Monkey). The people in the video make some amusing comments, although they do exhibit the worst of the victim mentality that a lot of people in this […]

A breath of fresh air from F1 Racing

I’m taking a brief break from my break because I think I can afford to now. When I last wrote about the racism issue in F1, it was to bemoan the media’s role in fuelling the fire. If you have been reading for a while you might know of the distaste I have for some […]

F1 season review: podcasts

In case you were wondering, I have decided against writing a review of F1’s ‘bigwigs’ — for the sake of my health. I just wrote a big rant about Max Mosley the other day anyway. My next post was going to look at F1 websites. But this week Ollie White wrote a post about podcasts, […]

F1 season review: broadcasts

Today’s post in my series reviewing the 2007 Formula 1 season was going to be about F1’s bigwigs — Max Mosley and the FIA, Bernie Ecclestone and FOM. However, events in this area are continuing and show no sign of stopping yet, so I’ll leave it for later. Instead, I’ll move on to what I […]

New bloggy radio programme: iPM

Radio 4 has a new programme about blogs and other internets stuff running for the next couple of months. Despite the fact that it has that horrible ‘i’ prefix which really ought to be banned, iPM is actually an interesting radio experiment. I’m still not fully sure what iPM is. A spin-off of PM, certainly. […]

The new religion

I now know what they mean when some people say that environmentalism is the new religion. Thankfully the storm surge predicted at dawn didn’t come to much. It seemed like a different story last night. I was listening to Radio 5 Live overnight, and they were simulcasting with BBC local radio stations. (Incidentally, you can […]

Nobody has confidence in the FIA

A full race review will come later. But I have to talk about the stewards’ investigation because it is so pressing. I was hoping — as was everyone else who loves sport — that the World Championship would be decided on the track. I was hoping that there would be no irregularities found after the […]

The most biased article about Lewis Hamilton I have ever read

And that’s saying something! And would you credit it, it was by ITV-F1. WHY LEWIS IS TAKING THE FLAK, the headline screams, stomping its feet. The article by Mark Hughes (who is normally one of the more sensible ITV-F1 people) starts as it means to go on, by taking a true event and completely twisting […]

Two weeks in a row!

So there I was on Monday night, lying in bed listening to Up All Night as I normally do. Then all of a sudden they began talking about me. Once again it was the Pods and Blogs segment, and once again it was in the Britblog Roundup slot. The very same slot where I farted […]
